tract: In robotics, it is often not possible to learn useful policies using pure model-free reinforcement learning without significant reward shaping or curriculum learning. As a consequence, many researchers rely on expert demonstrations to guide learning. However, acquiring expert demonstrations can be expensive. This paper proposes an alternative approach where the solutions of previously solved tasks are used to produce an action prior that can facilitate exploration in future tasks. The action prior is a probability distribution over actions that summarizes the set of policies found solving previous tasks. Our results indicate that this approach can be used to solve robotic manipulation problems that would otherwise be infeasible without expert demonstrations.
